Sunday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Special Guest Meryl Dorey
Back in 1994 we were feeling that the government and the medical community, in general, tended to exaggerate the safety and benefit profiles of vaccinations whilst downplaying their risks and true effectiveness.
For that reason, our group was formed with the express purpose of:
- promoting discussion about medically-referenced information on vaccine safety and effectiveness;
- lobbying to ensure that vaccinations are never made compulsory for Australian children; and
- supporting those who have chosen not to vaccinate or to vaccinate selectively.
From the beginning, we have operated as a volunteer-run community organisation. We used to be a membership and donation driven group whose only sources of funding were provided by our membership and sales of books, videos and DVDs in our web shop.
In 2009 however, an organisation was set up with the goal of forcing our organisation to close down. This group has filed dozens of complaints against us with various government departments and media outlets. They do not believe that freedom of speech or communication should be protected in Australia and want to close down the debate on this issue.
As a result of one of these complaints, the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) issued a public warning against the AVN. We fought against this warning and won our case in the NSW Supreme Court on the 24th of February, 2012. The HCCC were ordered to pay our costs and removed the warning. The Supreme Court stated that both the investigation and the warning were Ultra Vires (beyond their power) and their conduct of this investigation was illegal.

Australian police authorities buying up sound weapons They can break up protests with loud, piercing sound, but Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs) can also cause permanent hearing damage. Australian law enforcement agencies are now investing in the technology, but sound and law experts say their potential use is extremely concerning. Australia’s police forces are buying up devices capable of causing long-term hearing damage from a distance. The controversial Long Range Acoustic Device, or LRAD, has been used to disperse crowds in protest situations in the US. Its use at a Pittsburgh G20 protest in 2009 left University of Missouri English professor Karen Piper with permanent hearing damage. ‘We had seen these machines there [that] looked like an armoured vehicle with a satellite dish on top,’ says Piper, who had been observing the protest from a distance. ‘Then this machine emits this long piercing noise. It’s a very high frequency, it really hurts your ears. ‘I started to not feel well immediately after that. I felt dizzy and nauseous and disoriented.’ Piper’s hearing continued to suffer in the following days and months. Tests eventually revealed the effects caused by her exposure to the LRAD were permanent. ‘It’s actually nerve damage, and those nerves will never recover,’ she says. LRADs continue to be used by American authorities, including during protests over police brutality in 2014. The Law Report contacted all of Australia’s police forces and found more than half now own LRADs.
Australian police fire rubber bullets to clear demonstration at Melbourne’s war memorial as third day of rallies by anti-vaxxers turns violent Police have fired rubber bullets, stinger grenades and pepper balls at anti-vaxx protesters stationed at Melbourne’s war memorial on a third day of violent demonstrations. Around 400 people, who have been rallying to demand an end to mandatory vaccinations for construction workers, swarmed Victoria’s Shrine of Remembrance which was built to honour the state’s men and women who served in the First World War. Throughout Wednesday the mob chanted ‘lest we forget’ as they stood in front of the monument, some decked out in body armour and helmets in anticipation of a police attack while others urged officers not to arrest them out of ‘respect for the Anzacs’. After an hours-long standoff where police offered to let protesters leave, officers opened fire to clear demonstrators who had started pelting them with bottles. Victoria Police arrested 215 protesters throughout the day while two officers suffered head injuries, and one was taken to hospital with chest pains. Tap handles, golf balls, batteries and bottles were thrown at them from the shrine. Deputy Commissioner Ross Guenther said: ‘It was completely disrespectful that the crowd ended up at the shrine, which is such hallowed ground in this great city.’ The ugly scenes came after police ordered news channels to stop broadcasting aerial images of the protests, claiming organisers were using the live feed to evade police.
Australia Police Goes Door to Door: “Are You Aware Of Any Planned Protests Or Events Coming Up?” A trio of Australian police officers visited a man claiming they are doing “welfare checks” to ask residents if they plan on participating in the ongoing protests against COVID-19 mitigation efforts. The man in this video was asked if he has plans or if he knows anyone who has plans to protest and if he has participated in protests in the past. “Have you gone to any protest in the past?” the policeman asked. “No, I’m not going to answer that, you guys wouldn’t be here otherwise,” the man says. “I’d like to know how you got this address, actually,” the man told the police. “Anything else you might want to tell us to help ensure the public safety?” an officer asked after a barrage of questions about his “plans.” “No, as long as you aren’t going around shooting people with rubber bullets like in Victoria,” the man said.
Arrest footage and teargas raise concerns about Victoria police’s use of force to quell protests The use of weapons like teargas and stinger grenades and vision of a man being thrown to the ground by a Victorian police officer at Flinders Street Station have raised concerns about police’s use of force during the ongoing protests in Melbourne this week. On the fourth day of protests in the city, footage emerged online showing an officer approaching a man from behind and throwing him to the ground. The man appeared to be talking calmly to other officers at the time. A Victoria police spokesperson said the police were aware of the footage and the professional standards command was investigating the incident. The civil rights group Liberty Victoria was concerned about the footage. “It’s deeply concerning. Incidents like that can motivate others in a deleterious way,” spokesperson Michael Stanton said. “We don’t say police have an easy job – far from it. We’ve seen some shocking scenes of protesters hurling abuse or worse, we’ve seen police getting injured and hospitalised and that’s terrible, but what you don’t want in that situation is to have a disproportionate use of force that could itself spark further unrest.” Melbourne Activist Legal Support has been monitoring the protests, and spokesperson Anthony Kelly said it was a takedown technique that had been used before and was potentially excessive.

Federal workers can be fired for refusing vaccination, but must show up to work until their cases are determined, new guidance says Federal employees can be fired for refusing to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, but as their disciplinary cases wind through the system, they will report to work alongside vaccinated colleagues, according to Biden administration guidance issued this week. The new guidance to implement a vaccine mandate for the government, which Biden announced last week, represents a reversal of the strategy the White House coronavirus task force pushed in August for those employees without shots who refused under an earlier plan to get regular testing for covid-19. Then, agencies were told they could place employees on administrative leave, a paid suspension used widely for short-term absences but also when a manager proposes removing an employee. “They seem like they decided to go with a harder approach,” said Jeff Friday, general counsel for the National Federation of Federal Employees, which has about 100,000 members at the Defense Department, U.S. Forest Service and other agencies. “You’re still going to have to work until you’re let go,” Friday said. “Paid leave is certainly a disincentive to getting vaccinated.”
Religious exemption to vaccine mandates may be difficult to obtain, as Amish case shows New mandates could force millions of Americans to get the coronavirus vaccine. But exemptions may be available for those who have a medical condition or a sincerely held religious belief that prevents them from getting vaccinated. In our world of bureaucrats gone wild, what counts as a “sincerely held religious belief” is anything but simple. A recent case, unrelated to the pandemic, illustrates the point. When an Amish community in Minnesota sought a religious exemption from state water control regulations, power-hungry bureaucrats denied the religious exemption, claiming that the group’s religious beliefs were not sincerely held. The Amish don’t live like most Americans. They deliberately lack the modern conveniences we enjoy. Our pop culture celebrates the unshakable Amish fidelity to their cherished beliefs. Anyone knows that from the movie “Witness,” starring Harrison Ford, Weird Al Yankovic’s satirical “Amish Paradise” (a send-up of Coolio’s non-Amish “Gangsta’s Paradise”) or the reality show “Breaking Amish.” When the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) targeted one of the most traditional Amish communities for failing to comply with a water treatment mandate, it threatened to “[displace] the Amish from their homes, [move] all their possessions, and [declare] their homes uninhabitable” if they did not comply. Far from fighting homelessness, the MPCA tried hard to cause it.
Buffalo Bills Require Proof Of Vaccine, NFL Star Cole Beasley Offer To Buy Unvaccinated Tickets With COVID-19 cases continuing to surge in certain places around the U.S, President Joe Biden has urged all Americans to get vaccinated. Democrats even pleaded with businesses and sports venues to start turning away people who refuse to get the vaccine. While numerous businesses have implemented a vaccine-only policy, when it comes to the NFL, only four teams, the Raiders, Seahawks, Saints, and Bills require any person in attendance to show proof of vaccination before attending any home game. But while they try to push the vaccine, NFL star Cole Beasley spoke out on the matter and presented a generous offer to those unvaccinated fans. After the Buffalo Bills released a statement mandating proof of the vaccine, wide receiver Beasley and long snapper Reid Ferguson decided to make a statement of their own, and it’s in direct conflict with the Bill’s statement. According to both players, they will pay for a couple of lucky fan’s tickets to any away game because they have the right to decide to get the vaccine or not. Responding to fan Chris Hauquitz, who is still questioning the vaccine, Beasley wrote, “If you find an away game you are able to go to then I will buy the tickets for you guys. DM me names and everything and I’ll figure out the best way to make it happen.”
